Fiorentina – Can Fiorentina hold their nerve and secure seventh spot along with European football?

A 13th place finish last season for Fiorentina and losing their best player and top scorer halfway through this campaign would hardly give confidence that the club could compete at the top end of Serie A this campaign. As it is, Vincenzo Italiano’s men can guarantee qualification to Europe if they beat Juventus, who are likely to have the aforementioned former striker in Duan Vlahovic as part of their line-up. Fiorentina are are in seventh spot which would see them play Europa Conference League football, but also have the chance of playing in the Europa League.

For that to happen, they either have to finish sixth (one point behind Roma who play on Friday), or hope Jose Mourinho’s men win the ECL which would in turn make seventh place in Serie A good enough for the Europa.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 12 May)
As complicated as that may seem, the take home message is a win would make certain their participation in the European football next season, and the other permutations will take care of themselves. Their recent form does not inspire huge confidence they’ll get the three points, though.
Last week’s defeat away to Sampdoria was their fourth defeat in five games, conceding 11 goals in the process. Italiano will be hoping that the motivation his players have and the their strong form at home (11 wins in 15 matches) will be enough to see them to victory.

Juventus Preview – Will Juventus end what has been an disappointing campaign overall with away win?

The return of Max Allegri at the beginning of the season was supposed to see Juventus back challenging for the title and becoming the dominant force in Italian football once again. Now, approaching the final match of the 2021/22 season, Juve know they will finish fourth which may bring with it Champions League football but it does not satisfy the demands this club has for success.

Despite a brief flirt with a title challenge a few weeks back, finishing top has never really been a realistic aim since their very slow start to the season. Their misery has been further compounded with a last-16 exit to Villareal in the Champions League and losing in the final of the Coppa Italia to rivals Inter earlier this month.

The lost to Inter has came in between dropped points away to Genoa and Lazio in Serie A, meaning they have won only three of their last seven in the league. This is always likely to be the last game for several stalwarts, including Giorgio Chiellini who will leave the club after 18 years in Turin.

Whether Vlahovic plays in this game or not he is the future for Juventus. He has scored seven since making the move from Florence in January, taking his season tally in the league to 24 goals.

Fiorentina vs Juventus Betting Advice

The season may be done for Juventus but there are plenty of players in this squad who will want to end their careers at the club on a winning note. There is also a longstanding rivalry between these teams so Fiorentina know they will have to be at their best to get the three points.

Juventus are looking for a third straight win against Fiorentina this season, having already knocked them out the Coppa Italia en route to the final.


Key Facts –  Fiorentina vs Juventus Betting Tip

  • Fiorentina are level on points with Atalanta and one behind Roma in the race for European qualification
  • Juventus have already secured Champions League position but a fourth place finish is quite underwhelming
  • Juve have won both of the meetings earlier this season – one in Serie A, the other in the Coppa Italia


The hosts have been strong at home this season, and only Inter have won more home games in the league. With their need greater, I’m backing them to make it a 13th victory on their own turf.
